You can create labels in several ways:

You can modify any label layout file you create with the Label Designer.

Creating Labels Using the Label Wizard

You can create labels easily by using the Label Wizard. The Label Wizard helps you set up and create a label layout using your answers to a series of questions.

Note:
The first time you run the Label Wizard, it prompts you to install default label templates. This operation is performed only when you run the wizard for the first time.

To start the Label Wizard

  1. Open the project for your application.

  2. In the Project Manager, expand the Documents node.

  3. In the Documents node, click Labels and then New.

  4. In the New Label dialog box, click Label Wizard.

  5. Follow the instructions on the wizard screens.

For more information, see Label Wizard.

You can also start wizards by clicking Wizards on the Tools menu and selecting a wizard. After you create a layout using a wizard, you customize the layout using the Label Designer.

Creating Labels Using the Label Designer

You can create custom labels by starting with a blank label layout in the Label Designer.

Note:
The Label Designer and Report Designer are similar in functionality but differ in the default page layout definition use. The Label Designer also provides the ability to associate label templates with the Designer, so you can subdivide a page layout into predefined label sections. If the Label Designer does not provide you with a choice of label templates when you create a new label, run the Label Wizard to install them.

To start the Label Designer

  1. Open the project for your application.

  2. In the Project Manager, expand the Documents node.

  3. In the Documents node, click Labels and then New.

  4. In the New Label dialog box, click New Label.

    The Label Designer opens.

For more information, see Label Designer.

You can also start a new blank label from the File menu by clicking New and in the New dialog box, click Label and then New File.

You can open the Label Designer programmatically using the CREATE LABEL and MODIFY LABEL commands. For more information, see CREATE LABEL Command and MODIFY LABEL Command.
